What fascinates me about this is demographic breakdown of the media: who is consuming what types of media? It is clear that the media is being produced to fit particular demographics, but this is letting us 'peek behind the curtain' and see how social the media is becoming. How can educators 'customize' the information to fit their particular classroom demographic most effectively?
